Profile of an entrepreneur
Bruno Gideon is a successful Swiss-Canadian author and entrepreneur. Born in Switzerland to a Jewish family during World War II, Bruno was faced, at an early age, with the difficult challenge of trying to make sense of the world around him. His childhood experiences have not only shaped the compassionate person he is today, but have served as a catalyst for success and determination in all areas of his life.
As a young man he worked at odd jobs throughout Europe–a busboy in Rome, a waiter in France, a hotel clerk in Zurich. Later he decided to go into business for himself. With sheer determination and self motivation, he built three multi-million dollar companies from the ground up. His business ventures included a successful wholesale chain called Cash and Carry, a food discount chain called PickPay, and Switzerland’s first computer store, Microspot.
But Bruno’s business ventures didn’t stop there. His passion for writing led him to a career in journalism, public speaking, and book writing. Altogether, he has written nine books that focus on personal growth and entrepreneurship which draw from his personal experiences. Bruno is best known for his books Don’t Take No for an Answer, Wet Behind the Ears, and Not at My Expense. He has sold more than100, 000 copies across Europe, Canada, and the United States.
Eleven years ago Bruno immigrated to Toronto and is proud to call Canada his home. He focuses his time and energy on giving back to the community by donating his publications to college and university programs and providing free seminars and book talks to budding entrepreneurs. Bruno's life motto says it all: "Life experiences are wasted if they are not shared".
He also writes Bruno’s Minute, a free, motivational, weekly newsletter sent by email. What began as an experiment in 2001 quickly grew to an online success with more than 50,000 readers worldwide. Bruno believes his free newsletter helps people to reflect on their personal growth as individuals, particularly amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s his way of expressing gratitude for all of the positive things he has enjoyed. There’s something for everyone in his newsletter – advice on repairing broken relationships, how to let go of pain and forgive others, the keys to personal and professional success.
